Any time of year, a trek along our nature trails is sure to clear your head—plus there plenty more to explore just a short drive away. From self-guided walking tours along the shore, to excursions to view the stunning flora and fauna onsite, to skiing and snowshoeing, we have something sure to suit your outdoorsy spirit.
Follow our looped self-guided walking tour through woods and along our Tidal Estuary. This 2.5km loop starting from the Main Lodge, follows along the perimeter of our Five Rivers Estuary and can be done in either direction. Leaving the Main Lodge, start this trail by following the roadway between the Ocean Spa and the green Administration Building. Passing the gazebo on your right, you’ll get a sneak peek at Five Rivers Estuary (Caution: Poison Ivy is present along the roadside). Just past Ocean Lodge (#602) you’ll find the Trail Head along the tree line on your left and a path for the Nature Trail. Follow the single track trail as it meanders its way along the edge of the Tidal Estuary. This will take you to a Foot Bridge to cross the Estuary. Keep a lookout for Herons and Eagles. At low tide, the nutrient rich sand flats attract many other birds to our shores. Be careful when crossing, due to our Nova Scotia weather sometimes rocks get moved around with wind and rain. Once across the bridge, you can follow the trail to your left along Five Rivers Drive, keeping the Estuary on your left, you’ll pass some of our Vacation Homes, Cottages, and private residences. After about 1.5kms you’ll return to our main driveway – turning right takes you to the Golf Course, and to your left, back to the Main Lodge.
